August's Bead Journal Project
I have finally gotten back to making a doll dress for Samantha. She is a guest at a wedding and thought that apple green would be pretty at the end of the summer. That color also looks good with her dark hair.
The fabric is silk dupioni that I had in my stash. It frayed terribly otherwise it wasn't difficult to sew. I lined the top and made french seams on the skirt. The lace is from pieces that were left from when I made my daughter's wedding gown and so are the crystals. I did tea dye the lace so that it wasn't so white.
The mannequin was a holiday gift from my daughter. It is lots of fun to use it to display a dress as you're working on it. She always knows exactly what to buy me that I'll love. Thank you again, Ellen.
